While this surely wasn't the Ya-Ya Sisterhood (which I adored), it had all the same characters (Sidda's boyfriend is pretty scarce though) and a similar feel. The little vignettes told from the point of view and in the 'voice' of different characters was cool. This didn't have the impact as Ya-Ya Sisterhood, but maybe because it seemed somewhat derivative. Still it was enjoyable though far too short!
LOVED THIS BOOK! Touching, heartbreaking, hilarious all rolled into one book! I flew threw these CDs...and listend to it again before sending it back.
Rebecca Wells combines the interest, the humor, the style that makes a popular book hum. But there's literature here lurking in the depth of ideas, the complexity of her look at humanity. The reading is superb.
I loved this book! Author knows how to write a real story about real people with true heart and soul.
Her sense of humor is wonderful! I laughed and
laughed throughout the book while, at the same
time feeling so sad for the very same characters.
The narrator is great - she captured the characters so well that I felt like I was right there in the middle of it all! Too bad the book had to end.
I liked the switching of point-of-views from character to character. But this book doesn't come close in humor to the Ya-Yas. I lost interest a few times because there wasn't enough happening but complaining and self-pitying by a bunch of drunks.
